[TRAILHEAD?] The Mosaic Collective

I've just been watching Lost on ABC, and these ads keep popping up. They're a black screen with a small flash of video in a little tile. Then, text comes up on the screen that says, "What did you see?" So far, there have been two ads, one showing a bride and groom kissing and one showing a coffin.

I Googled the phrase "What did you see?" and it gave me a site in the Sponsored Links. www.themosaiccollective.com

It has an ABC copyright notice at the bottom.

Discuss! Smile

EDIT: Another ad. This time with someone surfing.

EDIT 2: Saw another one. Couldn't tell what the video was though.

I saw a fetus in utero, like a sonogram.

EDIT: New clip - kids coming out of a school?

EDIT 2: Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't the video images appearing in different parts of the black screen. IIRC, the wedding video appeared in the top left corner, whereas the surfer video appeared closer to the bottom right.

hrmmm.... The site seems to be broken now. Whenever you enter an answer in the box and put in an e-mail, it gives the "Please put in a valid email address to continue" error. I tried multiple emails and it doesn't work.

I entered "wedding" and then put in my e-mail. Ooo, this looks interesting.

Anyone think it might be a new Abrams-connected project? Especially with LOST ending after the next season. I'm sure ABC jumped on whatever the LOST-team might've pitched, if it is indeed the same people.

Ooo, some more searching:

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
Apparently ABC is pretty jazzed about its forthcoming pilot, Flash Forward. Loosely based on Robert J. Sawyer's sci-fi novel, David S. Goyer and 'Star Trek' veteran Brannon Braga's Flash Forward stars Joseph Fiennes and chronicles the aftermath of a global event in which everyone in the world blacks out for 2 minutes, 17 seconds and has a mysterious vision of the future.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, when viewers tune in for the 100th episode of Lost next week, they will be served an extra dose of mystery. ABC will launch a stealth promo campaign for Flash Forward during the episode in which Daniel Faraday (Jeremy Davies) comes clean about what he knows about the island.

The trade reports that while questions about Lost's dense mythology will likely be answered in the 100th episode, the commercial breaks for Flash Forward will raise a host of new ones. Viewers will see perplexing snippets that may also direct them to a website.

According to those who have read the Flash Forward pilot script, about 40 million people do not survive the global event—as people lose consciousness, they drown while swimming, crash their cars while driving, airplanes fall from the sky, etc. Moreover, it's apparently less of a blackout, and more of a premonition: each of the survivors experiences a snippet from their own future during that time loss. Not just any moment, mind you, but a very specific moment five months into the future: 8pm on April 20, 2010.

What do they witness? That's kept a mystery in the pilot.

Either way, it sounds like a pretty intriguing concept from which to build a series. It should be noted however, that while ABC is aggressively marketing the property — always a good sign — they haven't yet committed to ordering a series. Which essentially means they're going to wait to see how the pilot performs.


This is beginning to sound kind of sort of freakin' awesome.

The premise of this show has hooked me immediately, and any game that would be related I will play.

I can't wait for more info on this.

O good, I'm not crazy then, I saw the the first clip I saw was the wedding one right after a sprint commercial about a wedding. I wasn't sure if it was part of that or not but seemed really ARG-ish anyways. I think the premise of this story is quite interesting and look forward to the pilot
